Fun activities planned for NNUH Open Day & Fete
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) will be holding an Open Day and Fete, from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 29th June 2013 with funds raised at the fete going to the hospitals Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal. The theme of the day will be of a healthy eating, lifestyle and sporting focus.
Visitors will be able to see what goes on behind the scenes at the hospital, browse the fete stalls or look around the careers fair. There will be free entry and free car parking on the day.
John Fry, NNUH CHairman said: “We want to showcase some of the excellent work that goes on within the hospital and give the public a chance to see areas that would not usually be open to them. This year we will also be running a hospital fete alongside the open day in aid of our Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal, which will bring state of the art radiotherapy treatment to the people of Norfolk and Suffolk”.
The Appeal aims to raise £600,000 to provide state-of-the-art facilities for treating patients with prostate and gynaecological cancers with a targeted form of radiotherapy call brachytherapy.
Key attractions at the open day include finding out what goes on in an operating theatre, take part in “Organise your Organs” and “Operation” games, have a look inside the lungs on a training simulator and meet Fred our Pharmacy robot. Visitors will also be able to try their hand at being a radiotherapist on our 3D virtual simulator, and for the little ones they can bring their teddy bears to the Well Teddy Clinic or join in our teddy bear picnic.
There will be lots of activities for children at the fete, including inflatable slides, coconuts shy and other games. Plants, books, crafts and homemade cakes will be also available for visitors to buy.
A 5km run is also taking place at 10am on Saturday 29th June 2013 as part of the open day. This event has been organised by Active Norfolk and you can sign up for this event at www.activenorfolk.org/5kfunrun
